IMHO and just asking, food for thought thing, doesn't the 10" rim cause extra pressure on the wheel bearings and in turn give the wheel a tipped in appearance ?

I have 8" rims, 4" BS, so I was just wondering because I plan a SuperLIft/Coil-Over Conversation; just thinking ahead if I should use the 8 or 10" rims.

I'm running the same spec wheels are mazda with 35's...granted, i'm 4wd and have a different spindle/hub/bearing design, but i'm rolling 111,000 miles without any bearing issues what so ever. 40k of that on 15x10 w/ 4" bs and 35's.

I guess that means I don't have to worry about a 10" wheel if I decide to go there... thanks.
